Safe Families for Children UK has been shortlisted for the Best New Charity Award at the 2016 Charity Times Awards.
The Charity Times Awards continue to be the pre-eminent celebration of best practice in the UK charity and not-for-profit sector. Now in their 17th year, the awards are run by Charity Times Magazine – the leading title for UK non-profit professionals.
Safe Families for Children UK was nominated due to our vision of seeking to prevent children from needlessly being taken into care, by providing early intervention support to struggling families. To achieve this goal, Safe Families works in partnership with 20 local authorities across the UK, and aims to reduce the number of children being taken into care by 10%, year on year.
Since 2013 our wonderful volunteers have provided support to 1750 children.
This year’s winners will be announced at the Charity Times Awards Gala Dinner & Ceremony on 28 September 2016 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, London.
We look forward to continuing to provide this support to even more families, helping to keep more children in happy, loving homes.
